right now. a woman gave birth on the street just hours ago and then she was begging for help. claudine wong is there and just spoke to a man who called police for help. what is going on claudine? >> reporter: let me show you where we are. this building behind me is a church that runs a shelter which is open 24 hours but they don't take walk ins so when a woman showed up bleeding and asking for help, the man was not sure what to do. he didn't want to go on camera but he did take us through what happened. >> she was crying, just looked like she was just beaten up, covered in blood. she said she just had a bibi, -- baby, i didn't see a baby in her hand. she just started walking off and that's when i called police. >> the woman did walk off and he saw her again and he saw a woman with something in her arms also trying to get help. >> he was trying to get help with oncoming cars and that's when police had arrived. >> now we do not know the condition of the baby or the mother and we do know police were at the hospital and we will head over to the hospital to try to talk to somebody to try to
, begged for the ring but was ignored. >>> a twister tore through the sunshine state leaving about 40 homeowners with severe property damage. so far central florida officials have recorded down power lines and trees, as well as scattered debris along roadways. >>> finally, our four-alarm fire ruined preps for difl ya's annual new year's day celebration. the blaze torched a warehouse that was used to store costumes and floats for the mummers' parade. there were over 100 firefighters that battled that fire before it was brought under control. organizers for the mardi gras-like event says they won't need what to replace until they assess the damage. >>> well, to sports, "monday night football," texans and patriots. new england's tom brady connected on four touchdown passes. 42-15. the nba, houston and san antonio went to overtime. surged ahead for a 134-26 victory over the rockets. >>> in miami lebron james poured in 27 points against atlanta, and the heat beat the hawks, 101-92. >>> all right. it's being called one of the worst free throws ever caught on tape. here's why. look at this g
mistakes, not giving the security that was requested, ignoring these -- begging of the people in an gauzy for extra help. we end up with the first slain ambassador in 30 years, and where does the buck stop? ever heard of who have never been named. there was one name, the others have not been. the secretary of state is not at the hearings because she has an illness and her underlings are their. >> are you suggesting she is taking an illness? >> i am saying she is absent from a hearing where she should have been the one to have taken the responsibility or to explain what the phrase means, but stops here, if it does not stop with her but with underlings. >> i do think the secretary of state has to testify and has to testify not as the department's budget of the future policy, not simply for the resolution of the questions that persist even after the report, which was devastating. at the same time, if she is to have any political ambitions beyond presidential prospects, just in her own self-interest, beyond a national interest, she has to fully explain and put this behind her so that it does
and begging, he said i must ask you, mr. president, now is the time, i'm paraphrasing. he roosevelt to declare war and begged for 50 destroyers. >> sean: and roosevelt wanted to get in but was fighting a lot of pressure at home. >> the isolationists, the republican party for the most part, mccormick's newspaper in chicago, after world war i and since george, washington, left office saying no foreign anteinglements did not want any alliance. >> sean: so pearl harbor happens, churchill makes the trip ayos the pond. tell us about that christmas, that time. that moment. obviously the country is in chaos, turmoil. and we just heard churchill at the white house. >> i think it was the bleakest christmas around the world since the days of the plague. i mean this was hong kong fell on christmas day. >> sean: the world was really at risk in world war ii of falling. germany was on the move. you know, we had now we are fighting the japanese. we are now involved in world war ii. it was pretty perilous and in the bombing of britain, why don't you describe the courage that churchill showed his fellow country
provide the people who live here would like us to leave. they want to return some normalcy and that begs that question, when we do go, when we leave this town and when our world continues, we leave all of these people with a brand-new normal and something they're going to have to figure out for themselves what their new normal is going to be like. and i just want to share an anecdote. moments ago a man by the name of joe whalen came here to meet me by the creek and seen the piece run today on cnn. he lives in town not far away. he's a general contract, builds homes in the community. he was so moved by that notion that once we all leave, they will be left alone with their new normal. he didn't know what to do. he said i want to do something. i don't know what to do. and ultimately he came up with a plan and he shared it with me moments ago. he's going to go around town to all of those affected by the tragedy and with some of his colleagues in the building business, he's going repair their homes. whatever he sees needs doing he's going to do it and he's not going to ask for anything in ret
this is one thing that clearly makes no sense. which begs the question why is government doing nothing when it comes to guns. here to talk to us about possible solutions is john rosenthal, co-founder of stop handgun violence and the american hunters and shooters association, an alternative to nra for moderate gun owners. thank you for joining us. >> thank you eliot. >> eliot: the frustration we've felt for years in response to gun violence. in the context of all that has happened, the lack of action, what is your agenda, and how do you plan to make it real. >> it's no different than it has been the better part of 20 years. i'm a gun owner. i'm a business person. i believe in the second amendment and the right to bear arms but the founders never extended that the second amendment extend to terrorists and criminals to buy guns without even a background check. toy guns and teddy bears have a multitude of regulations of how they're made and marketed. you need an i.d. to vote in many places. but in 33 states it's federal gun policy that you do not need an i.d. or background check to buy an unres
it to mexican authorities. so that's what he did and that's what got him arrested. the parents are begging the obama administration to help save his son's life. we have the attorney for hamar here. >> good to be with you. >> greta: nice to have you here. why can'ty get him out of jail? what's wrong? >> okay. right now, there is a fliel mexico, trials start at certain points and there is different hearings, like in the united states of america. and we are ready to go with our experts and also we have motions and we have two injunctions for exclusion of evidence for violation of his constitutional rights. >> greta: when is this trial date? >> the trial date's been on. the next hearing's set for january 17. that date, greta, was moved, continued, from october 30 or thereabouts. the hearings were set for november 13 and 23 and they were continued because the mexican customs agent was transferred to another place. and we have to bring him in, the judge wanted to cross-examine and we said, of course. i said yes. so he will have to be brawlt brought in for cross-examination. >> greta: all right.
man, which i still am haunted by the scene that doris paints as he's there begging this young woman to just come work with him. nixon, of course, leaves broken. after that, ford leafs broken, choked up. the morning after his wife has to speak for him. jimmy carter leaves broken. ronald reagan. every single president. george h.w. bush. >> it's a brutal job. >> they all leave broken. >> well, i mean, look at obama, he's not broken but his hair is graying. they visibly age before -- >> joe's not broken. >> but you know what, he refused to leave. remember? bill clinton still in the hanger four months later. >> they're broken when they leave, but then they rehabilitate themselves. i mean, even nixon. you couldn't leave more broken than dicks nixon. he becomes the sage of saddle river, having journalists at the dinner, rewriting history books. even nixon can come back. there is life after the presidency if you handle yourself. but history is like -- >> another reason this is so much fun and so important ultimately is remember the way the founders described -- i think it was washington des
. then two weeks later, three weeks later, kennedy himself is assassinated. and as you said before, this begs the question that historians argue about. we will probably keep arguing about that the next 50 years. what kennedy has mounted to -- what he have pulled out of the american troops in vietnam and the advisers if we didn't yet have the troops and the great numbers of the combat troops there? and you are doing think that indications are that he would have come in and you cite various sources about that. curious just to challenge that a little bit. there is a wonderful book by a story called choosing war which you probably know. in which he says that the viet cong attacks were doubling in november from the month before and south vietnam and that there were meetings of kennedy's tauter advisers which i think finished up the day before kennedy was assassinated. this would be a good film. and incidentally the viet cong we are going to win if they didn't do something very quickly. so, not to challenge the members of people who were devolve in the sand kennedy would have pulled out, but wouldn

, is begging for money. -- that great project, is begging for money. this is the sort of thing that ought to be supported by the u.s. government. the final thing we need to do in terms of non state actors, al qaeda came closest to developing wmd when they were in control of territory in afghanistan. we have to keep groups like that from getting a base. >> chemical, i wonder if you could talk a little bit about nuclear terrorism. >> again, i am a scientist. i think it is a very small probability. i reject the idea of 1% or 50%. the chance of fukushima happening was less than 1%. it is a low probability, but a horrific consequences. i think if proliferation happens, as nuclear capabilities bread, you'll have more of the wherewithal for terrorists to exploit and therefore more opportunities. i would like to emphasize what was said, you have to deny the territory. that is the lesson in afghanistan. you don't want to give these people time and space to work on these kind of weapons. with that being said, if you look at sudan, somalia, a couple of places, is not an easy thing to accomplish. and
with debt and entitlement and get torch the knees begging government to save them. every step of the way. watch it that's what barack obama has done. he pulled the professor in front of the nation and no one stopped him. i have been saying it every step of the way. >> wayne allyn root is a libertarian different than a conservative? >> yeah. it's a little more moderate and tolerant on social issues which are almost meaningfulless. what difference does it make if you have gay marriage if you are gay and unemployed. what difference does it make if you have an abortion and you are employed. the answer is what matters is jobs. jobs and the economy. and so, you know, i think from every measure standard obama's a failure. back to libertarian. republicans had the chance with george bush. he was a failure. terrible president. the only guy worse than bush is barm. back to back you've had two terrible presidents. the difference is one supported capitalism one without any questions is socialist. the socialist is obama. libertarians on the other hand haven't caused any of the problem. we haven't been
into effect. people aren't going to be happy about that, and the president will be able to say, look, i begged them, i repeatedly said 98% of the american public, they wouldn't get a tax increase if we just took them out of the equation, let's pass legislation extending the bush tax cuts for everyone earning under $250,000 a year. they didn't do it. so, you know, he'll have some leverage on that in terms of the politics because politically, you know, the polls all are very consistent. the election results are pretty consistent. the american public is ready for a modest increase in taxes for the upper 2% of taxpayers. having said that, there's another issue that's coming up in february or march and that's raising the debt ceiling once again. the republicans have a lot of leverage on that right now because the white house, the administration will desperately want to raise that debt ceiling so the u.s. doesn't go into default. that could undermine u.s. creditworthiness, u.s. interest rates, all that kind of stuff, and the republicans will have some serious leverage there down the road. both sides
about them, they do not have to go begging the politicians they may be investigating to please fund their investigations. their funding is totally independent of state lawmakers. so when they want to investigate state lawmakers, they are insulated from those lawmakers trying to shut them down by shutting down their funding. it's a smart system, right? it's a tough system, it's independent, it's aggressively nonpartisan. now it's not like wisconsin elections are perfect. they may have this tough, independent, aggressively nonpartisan structure at the state level, but they do have very partisan elected clerks at the county level who have to administer elections by county. and some of those county officials are more partisan and therefore maybe a little more suspect than others. but the overall structure of the state, the elections are not being run by one of these guys. they're not being run by a katherine harris or a john husted or got guessler there is no statewide elected official who is running the election and endorsing one of the candidates in that election that they are running
today-- insist that the president hasn't put forward spending cuts, one, it begs the question, what spending cuts have the republicans put forward? >> reporter: the president was asked if he was optimistic about reaching a deal. >> still a work in progress. >> reporter: but senate majority leader harry reid said republicans in congress should yield to public opinion about tax increases. >> speaker boehner knows or should know that the middle- class tax help that we have to pass would sail through the house of representatives. democrats would overwhelmingly vote for it. i would doubt there could be any democrat that would vote against it. and as we know from the chorus of republicans that are added to every day, more republicans join every day. >> reporter: in fact, new polls show americans do want compromise, and it's the democrats who hold the edge. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll released yesterday shows a majority. 65% say president obama has a mandate on both increasing taxes on the wealthy and reducing federal spending; a similar two-thirds are willing to accept tax increases
time because it has a certain ring of truth. it does have a certain ring of truth. it does beg the question that haunts this book, that is part of a meditation upon i am inviting you to have. where do we want a market way of seeing and where do we draw the line? where do we not want a market way of seeing? i ask the people in this book what do you think of this? some said why do we need to have our own genetic child? so many children need to be adopted who are orphans. look of the aids orphans in africa and the like and others said it is fine to went your genetic child but why couldn't there be family or friend or someone from the church who would offer, lot of women of goodwill light in your own community come forward and others said you might not want that entanglement, you want more anonymity but why not do it in a nonprofit organizations such as that is the british solution. it is legal but through non-profit. another said it is fine to the for-profit. go to l a. it is fine. for it to be a for profit thing. so long as there's some kind of a bond formed between the genetic m
